Couple pull four crash victims from sinking vehicle.
A Merced, California homeless couple saved the lives of four people when they pulled them from a sinking vehicle and dialed 911.
The accident happened when a car skidded off an embankment into swift moving water.
"I was scared," said Joseph Edwards. The first thing in my mind, how many people were in the car."
The danger and cold temperatures didn't give them time to think.
Edwards says he tossed Bernice Gonzales his phone and jumped into the rushing creek.
He pulled three people onto the embankment, and then went to look for the fourth.
He found him and was able to pull him to safety as well.
All four of the people inside the car were sent to the hospital with minor injuries.
They were treated and released the same night.
